Tikait disconnected the phone, PRO called the allegation baseless
When I tried to contact Rakesh Tikait, the national spokesperson of the Bharatiya Kisan Union regarding the allegations of farm encroachment, he disconnected the phone saying that there was an event in Punjab. After this, after talking to Dharmendra Malik, PRO of Chaudhary Rakesh Tikait, he took his side. Dharmendra Malik says that a woman named Sushila had reached the house of Chaudhary Naresh Tikait, the national president of the Bharatiya Kisan Union, a few days ago regarding the land issue. There is a dispute going on between Sushila and her brother-in-law over the land. Rakesh Tikait and Naresh Tikait have no role in this. The allegations against him are baseless.

SDM Sadar Deepak Kumar says that the farm of woman farmer Sushila has been acquired by the Railways. A letter has been sent to the Railway Department for compensation. There is a dispute going on between Sushila and her family regarding the distribution of land. I do not have any complaint about the capture of Rakesh Tikait and his son.
